Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Sexual Assault Awareness Month:   

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (awareness month color is teal).

               Break the Silence,
End the Violence.

  • 1 in 5 women and 1 in 33 men will be sexually assaulted in their college years.
  • Among women who were sexually assaulted, 80-90% knew their attacker.
  • It is helpful to tell a survivor explicitly, “I believe you”. It’s often unhelpful to ask survivors why they made certain choices (e.g., “Why did you leave the party with him/her?”)

The Sexual Assault Crisis Service (SACS) at IU Health Center is sponsoring THE CLOSELINE PROJECT: T-SHIRT DISPLAY & CLOSING CEREMONY. The Clothesline Project aims to shine a light on the prevalence of sexual violence, and pay homage to victims and survivors. It focuses on giving power back to those who have experienced violence. It creates campus wide education that breaks the silence surrounding sexual violence. It gives survivors a sense of support, knowing they are not alone in their experiences. Lastly, it encourages students, staff, faculty, and community members to engage in social justice activism.

T-shirts will be displayed April 11 & 12, 10am-3pm & April 13, 10am-12pm at IU Health Center lawn.

A ceremony honoring survivors and victims will take place April 12, 3pm at IU Health Center lawn.

Wellness and Self-care Strategies for Prehealth Students — Friday, April 18th

Wellness and Self-care Strategies for Prehealth Students

Friday, April 13, 2018

4:00 – 5:00 PM in Woodburn Hall 003

Self-care has been highlighted as a formal competency for medical school and is being incorporated in curricula across healthcare disciplines. Knowing this is a skill you need to develop, learning how to manage stress, ask for help, and demonstrate resilience now are important skills for future professionals planning to work in demanding, and sometimes stressful, healthcare careers.

In this session, co-presented by the Health Professions and Prelaw Center and IU Counseling and Psychological Services, we will offer strategies, resources, and tools you can incorporate in your life to reduce your level of preprofessional anxiety and carry forward into your graduate education and career.

In addition, if you feel stressed about the demands of balancing rigorous prerequisite coursework with extracurricular activities or the competitive nature of admission to health professions programs, you are not alone. Identifying resources and coping strategies to reduce your level of preprofessional anxiety can lead to better personal, academic, and career decisions, and can also help you more fully enjoy your undergraduate experience!

We will leave time at the end of the session to discuss your questions, concerns, and ideas.

Students pursuing admission to any type of competitive admission health program are encouraged to attend this event.

It is okay if you must arrive late or leave early.

Calling All Graduate and Undergraduate Women of Color!

Ever wanted to be a part of a community with other women of color who’ve decided to pursue a graduate or undergraduate degree in the science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) fields at IU?

If yes, I’d like to invite you to participate in the 2018-2019 I CAN PERSIST STEM initiative. This comprehensive research-based program is designed to promote academic persistence among women of color enrolled in graduate and undergraduate programs in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs at Indiana University.

At the core of this comprehensive year-long initiative is a belief in the old adage that “it takes a village…”. This program leverages the collective power of minority women at all educational levels, including those currently employed as STEM professionals, graduate and undergraduate students, as well as high school girls. The ICP STEM Initiative aims to provide visibility to successful STEM professionals who identify as women of color, access to informal mentorship, invaluable educational and career resources, and above all else, a sense of community.

If you choose to participate in this program you will have the opportunity to gain a host of skills that would advance your professional and career development. Specifically, you will get the opportunity to:

  • Gain support and solidarity from other women of color who’ve chosen to pursue a STEM field
  • Skills and strategies to increase career preparedness
  • Enhanced Pedagogy, Curriculum, & Design skills
  • Engagement in science outreach with high school girls of color
  • Access to models of resilience (i.e., STEM female professionals of color) who are willing to share their strategies of success (e.g., navigating microaggressions, owning your voice, networking, etc.)
  • Access to informal mentorship
